CONSENT FOR STUDENT RELEASE OF INFORMATION 2015‐2016 Name: Student ID: Current Address: City: Phone: State: ZIP Code: Date of Birth: Email address: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of aspects of a student’s educational record that are not considered ‘directory’ information. Educational records include financial aid and student account records which are considered confidential and will not be released without written consent from the student, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. For this reason, it is necessary for the Office of Financial Aid at Grayson College to obtain permission from a student in order to release financial information not excluded by FERPA laws. For a full disclosure regarding FERPA, please consult the current year school catalog. In accordance with the Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), I, ____________________________________, the undersigned, authorize the release of my financial information to the individuals named below. This release only pertains to my financial aid records and does not allow the individuals named below access to information from any other department or office except if it impacts financial aid eligibility and charges. I agree to waive my rights under FERPA and allow the below‐named person(s) access to my financial aid records for the current award year effective as of this date and until revoked in writing by me to the Office of Financial Aid. I understand that this form must be completed for each award year as is the FAFSA. I also understand this form is not active until returned to the Office of Financial Aid.
